Ingredients

5
cornish hens
1 Tbsp
salt
2 Tbsp
creole seasoning
1 Tbsp
garlic pepper seasoning
1 Tbsp
accent seasoning
1 large
green bell pepper, chopped
1 large

5 Tbsp
margarine or butter

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
2
In a small bowl, stir together salt, creole, garlic pepper and accent seasoning.
3
Season the hens with seasoning mixture. I season the back side first and then the front side.
4
Pull the skin from the breast and rub seasoning on the breast and add 1/2 tablespoon of margarine or butter.
5
Loosely stuff the cavities of each hen with 1/2 tablespoon of margarine or butter, some green bell peppers and onions.
6
Roast the hens in the preheated oven for about a hour or until an instant read thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the thigh registers 165 degrees F.
7
After 30 minutes of baking, I bast the meat with the juices from the hens. And again in the last 15 minutes. Then I turn the oven up to 450 degrees F.
8
Remove hens from the oven, loosely tent with foil and let rest for 10 minutes before carving and serving.
